Service Learning and Leadership programs are offered by JCHS to educate and empower Jewish high school students to become socially responsible leaders. Students translate Jewish values of education, spirituality, and service into a meaningful way of life and a powerful Jewish identity. They also increase their understanding of Jewish responsibility toward self, family, and community through service in both Jewish and secular settings.
Students develop and articulate a compassionate view of the world and themselves...all the while having the time of their lives!
Once a month, students in grades 8-12 will work with a peer group of teens with special needs & disabilities at the nationally renowned Woods School in Langhorne, PA. Students will plan and implement activities including games, gardening, reading stories, music, sports, and art projects to share with their teen "buddies". Students will learn about children with special needs as well as Jewish responsibility and leadership in theory and action. Tuesdays 6:00-8:00pm
Once a month, students have fun while learning to prepare kosher meals for homebound elderly. In the process students learn about the Jewish perspective on aging and taking responsibility for those in need in our community. Students will review cooking techniques, rules of kashrut, kitchen safety, planning balanced meals and the special role that food plays in remaining healthy in body and spirit for a lifetime. Teamwork and great food to taste is just part of of the fun.

ATID is an inclusion and intergenerational mitzvah program for all teens. It includes a strong component, working in a residential life care facility with the Jewish elderly. This program is also within the framework of an inclusion program with other teens with special needs. Together with the elders we celebrate holidays participate together in art projects, cooking and other interactive programs. The activity is followed by an hour of reflection upon this intergenerational experience.
